Take the dash apart, there should be a write up on here somewhere. On how to do that. But like they said before change them all so yos wont have to do it again.

I'm having similar problem on two of the bulbs in my instrument panel. You need to take that part of the dash apart per step by step instructions in a blog in this forum. The bulb sockets on the circuit board become easily accessible once you've taken that part of the dash apart!

I replaced all the dash ilumination bulbs but forgot about the warning and indicator bulbs. A few months later the cruise control indicator light stopped working. I will just wait until another light goes out before I go back in there.
So, it is a good idea to replace 'ALL' the bulbs, not just the dash illumination bulbs.
